Gaja opened its doors to the public for the first time in 2014.
Those interested in visiting Gaja winery are invited to make a donation of minimum €300 per person to a specially chosen charity. In exchange, Gaia offers a personalised tour of vineyards and cellars followed by tasting of some of the best Nebbiolos in Italy.
Founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, the winery has elevated Barbaresco which has been overshadowed by Barolo.
Today the winery with the reputation of Italy’s finest wine producer is managed by Angelo Gaja and his three children, Gaia, Rossana and Giovanni. Gaia Barolo and Barbaresco wines are known for their rare purity, concentration, elegance and personality.
Gaja produces Barbaresco DOCG wines (sourced from 14 different vineyards), top-rated single-vineyard Barbaresco wines and cru Barolos as well as impressive whites: including the Sauvignon Blanc ‘Alteni di Brassica’ and ‘Rossj Bass’ Chardonnay.
Visiting European Wineries
Where to taste wines in the center of Bordeaux? Here is the list of my favourite wine bars in Bordeaux.
June is a great time to visit Bordeaux wine country. Everything is fresh and bright. You will see flowering vineyards, wine bottling, racking and other winery activities.
